The two members of the group, Marc Fischer and Matt Jones, rely heavily on their skills as multi-instrumentalists and improvisors for both recordings and live performances. In 2004, the group began a collaboration with Portland filmmaker Rob Tyler. As an experiment, Unrecognizable Now were given several of Tyler's experimental films to score. The interplay between the music and films complemented one another and the collaboration continues. Recently, Rob Tyler has also become a part of Unrecognizable Now's shows by providing projections of films that he manipulates live to fit the music.
In early 2006, Fischer, Tyler, and Jones curated the first in a series of audio/visual events entitled 'Vision + Hearing'. Exploring the close relationship between sight and sound has become a major focus for the group. Unrecognizable Now will have their debut album, In a Cave or a Coma, released on the Pehr Label in mid 2006. The album, an enhanced CD, will feature 10 songs plus a short film by Rob Tyler with music by Unrecognizable Now.
